Additional Information:

This spectacular Craig Alan original piece from the Narrative collection is a 3-dimensional construction shadowbox that is approximately 5 inches deep. It features an elegant white dress created in layers throughout the shadowbox.

The bodice of the dress, with a fitted shape and sheer lace over the shoulders, is painted onto the top of the acrylic glazed glass. Behind the glass is the skirt of the dress made up of dozens of delicate, pearly white butterflies suspended in white tulle fabric. Behind the skirt is a dark background with glimpses of a traditional Damask wallpaper design.

The glaze on the front of the glass fades in from the sides going from blue to clear and creates a foggy, almost ethereal effect.

Craig Alan’s whimsical, thought provoking and detailed paintings contain a mix of raw technical ability and rich imagination. Working in a style with elements of pop-art and surrealism, the artist experiments with creative techniques, and the use of metaphorical imagery, developing the subject matter and direction for his artwork in the process.

Populous Series:
The hundreds of tiny people which Craig depicts in his paintings, represent characters from all walks of life. These figures exhibit a variety recognized character and body types, conveyed through the artist’s brilliant use of posture and movement. The people are often arranged in patterns to form an iconic image; “connected” to each other on multiple levels. As Alan continues to explore and develop his subjects, this theme of connectivity remains consistent. His subjects range from nondescript urban environments and architecture, to technology and pop-culture. The paintings from his technology series, explore the inter-connection between the masses and our gadgets and devices that we use daily.
